Converting to and from abstract units
Occasionally the app will need to perform a conversion between an abstract unit (e.g. each) and a standard unit of measurement (e.g. kilogram). For example, it may cost you $3.00 to purchase 1 stick of butter but your recipe calls for 1 kg of butter. To handle such cases, specify mass and/or volume for the abstract unit. Dineserve will alert you whenever it needs more information to perform a conversion and ask you to specify an amount in mass or volume.
